There are few possibilities for acquiring knowledge related to innovation. Firstly, acquiring knowledge using machine learning typically requires structured and classified data and/or cases, and lots of them. Secondly, manual acquisition of knowledge requires human expertise. Both approaches seem impractical when it comes to innovation knowledge. While innovation is recognized as a vital part of sustainability within organizations, there is little assistance with how we can acquire, reuse or share the innovation knowledge that may exist. We suggest a technique and present preliminary results of an evaluation study using this approach.
